No, not THAT kind of coke party. It's Coca-Cola's "Prep-o-Rama" to prepare fans for the big game. There are recipes for "Punt Pate" and "Candied Pigskins," online paper football games and "Party Feng Shui," a trivia game that tests your game-day etiquette. If that's not enough, Joe Montana stops by to chat at 6 p.m. Wednesday.

OBSCURE PLAYER OF THE DAY

John Hudson

That's because Hudson is the Ravens' long snapper

Hudson is perfect since Oct.29 when he replaced Frank Wainright, who suffered a season-

ending injury.

Since returning to the NFL with Baltimore, he has been plenty busy because the Ravens' conservative offense had led to many punts. In the 21-3 playoff victory over Denver on Dec.31, Hudson snapped on 10 punts on a cold, windy day with 27-mph gusts

Hudson's perfect birthday present? A Baltimore victory Sunday. Hudson turns 33 the next day.
